Motivation letter

Hi DRC, you look awesome!

A picture is worth a thousand words.
So I gathered a few for you...

*1 Mandala Child-Friendly Space

Our vision was to have a safe and collaborative place few meters away from Moria camp. Environment also played an important part: natural constructions, imaginative storytelling, eco-activities, permaculture analysis and courses, …

“Kids are playing on the street in the middle of the cars; at the wash facilities with black water; with the trashes all around. We can do something!”

Tips: The time-lapse is made to not have people’s face while showing their presence and motion. Privacy is important.

*2 Lighthouse Relief

“Spotting is the most essential life-saving measure Lighthouse provides for safe-passage, and Cédric significantly added to this operation. Creating maps and distance references, Cédric’s guide refined our spotting methods and single handedly established the training strategy and standard operating procedures we continue to use today. Cédric is self-driven and an effortless leader, able to apply his creativity and strengths in any context.”

*3 Faces of One Happy Family

“Working with and not working for” is the motto of this established community center. With 15 volunteers and 70 helpers, we can say values are well represented within the NGO… and within its coordination team too!

I also made the internal communication. Language can become a strong barrier so I created hundreds of pictograms to improve information.

*4 Lesvos 3W map: NGOs and services

It was first a mind mapping. Fellow coordinators started to take pictures of it, it was a real need for them so I cross-checked the information and worked on a final layout.

It opened me new opportunities and stronger partnerships.

*5 Five days training for Lesvos volunteers

The training was launched in October 2019.
The idea is to give a proper training to volunteers before they arrive on the field. By subscribing, they receive one mail per day for a period of 5 days. Each day is a different yet important topic.

  • Humanitarian aid: history
  • Humanitarian aid: principles
  • Do No Harm approach, Code of conduct & Well-being
  • History of Greece
  • Context of Lesvos
  • Extra: conclusion and quiz

Since September I had +260 people taking the course.
